Photo of Principal

Mrs. Summers began her career with St. Mary’s County Public Schools in 1988 as a Kindergarten teacher at both Lettie Dent and Mechanicsville Elementary Schools.  She also taught grades, 3, 4, 5 and served as an IRT before becoming an Assistant Principal at Oakville Elementary in 1997.  In 2000, Mrs. Summers was appointed as the principal of Dynard Elementary School.  Under her leadership, Dynard was named the Maryland Character Education School of the Year. 

In 2007, Mrs. Summers was named the Washington Post Distinguished Educational Leader and the St. Mary’s County Public Schools Principal of the Year.   In 2009, Mrs. Summers was selected to open Evergreen Elementary School, which was the first new school in St. Mary’s County in almost 30 years. 

Mrs. Summers was appointed principal of Chopticon High School in 2016.  Since then, she has continued her mission to ensure that all students are provided an exceptional learning environment with every opportunity to succeed both in and out of the classroom.  She has a passion for education and an unwavering commitment to making a difference in the lives of children.  #ChooseKind
